The Famous Grouse whiskey is running a promotion pointing out Pubs around the country including Yorkshire that they say are famous. To my mind they are famous for selling this whiskey but anyway here is their Yorkshire selection
The Kings Arms York – famous for flooding as the river Ouse regularly entertains the weatherforecasters. Still popular with the Vikings who visit from Scandinavia via North sea ferries to pillage our shops.
Saville Arms Thornhill near Dewsbury. – One I now intend to visit, not because it is built on consecrated ground but for the untouched 1960’s decor and log fire.
The George and Dragon (of which there are many to chose from) in Hudswell North Yorkshire. A village co-operative venture that includes a very small shop and library.
The Minerva Hull – A favourite of mine for the Sea Shanty Festival in September. The fish and chips are to die for as many trawlermen must have done so in the past.
One of my pet internet hates is web sites that demand information and then still fail to deliver like Famous Grouse!
Do not bother visiting
http://www.thefamousgrouse.com – I have refused to give them a link, despite giving my date of birth and listening to an annoying trailer I wasn’t allowed further and I am over drinking age!
